Cleveland Indians are in the 2016 World Series after winning today can they add their name to the Sporting Fairytales of 2016.

it's been 68 Years since they last won the World Series back in 1948


If Chicago Cubs do beat Los Angeles Dodgers & make the World Series it's been 108 years since they last won the World Series in 1908
